I just built a $7000(US) computer for a friend, and I just wanted to document my experience with it. Parts list is in my sig, the Bronze Colossus was a fitting name in my mind, named after the neigh unkillable monstrosities of Dwarf Fortress. I've lost a few forts to these things. Anyways, we basically went down to Fry's Electronics, picked out what they had in stock and fit the budget (read: what was most expensive ) Currently he's borrowing my Samsung Syncmaster 790b (1280x1024), with a u2711 on the way. I just want to say, the Patriot Pyro SSD combined with the 3960X made installing Windows insanely fast, must have taken about 5 minutes start to desktop. The only intensive program installed is nVidia Supersonic Sled, which runs smooth as butter at maximum settings, but then it's only 1280x1024, so no surprise there. I can't wait till Kepler comes out and we try a GTX 780 on the u2711. While I could never justify spending that much money on a computer for myself, I must say, it was the most fun I had ever had building a computer. The Chaser Mk-1 was a dream to work with, I loved the HDD bay's tooless sled system. The Rampage Extreme IV was a blast to work with once you figured out the overclocking system, everything is running cool and quiet. We've got an additional two 200mm fans on the way (coolermaster sourced, not thermaltake, sadly their 200mm's are not on Newegg.), that should help out a little with the slightly hot for my taste (40c) CPU, as currently half the rad is uncooled from the outside (still has a stock fan pulling) but is also blocked. I'll get a picture next time I'm over. Probably will use Mister Dremel to open it up a bit.
